The first name 

Cosme is a male first name.

Cosme – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Cosme in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Cosme in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Cosme by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Cosme ranks at #6,409. That means there are 6,408 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Cosme.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Cosme -
swimming against the tide

If your name is Cosme your parents may be very proud to let their son swim against the tide: The name Cosme has never ranked higher than position 1,183 in our statistics and for many years not a single parent had the creative idea to choose the name Cosme for their son. But something caused mothers and fathers in 1909 to give the name more often than usual – only compared to the rest of the time, of course. You probably still won't find many children named Cosme because that was several decades ago – unless, of course, you have some very creative parents in your neighborhood.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Cosme was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

2022 - Looking for Cosme?

As in the last century, Cosme is still an exception. Even in 2022, the name was given very rarely - in fact, only 9 times in the entire USA. So a Cosme of 2022 will need very good binoculars to spot the next namesake of the same age.

Cosme -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Cosme is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 647 Americans in total bear this name. And these 647 men are located in only four states: Arizona, California, New York and Texas (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 men with this name in the state. So, if your name is Cosme and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Cosme in relation to it’s male population is Texas. And yet even there, only one in 24,323 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Cosme present.

Cosme has 5 letters 
and begins with a C

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter C is a frequent initial letter for boys’ names. This is because 5.2% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D.

With five letters, the name Cosme is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

With 5.2% of all boys' names that begin with a C, this first letter is thus much more common than the average of all letters. And which boys’ name beginning with C do you think is the most common in the US? The answer is... Charles.

Other names with 
C, o, s, m and e

If you take all the letters in the name Cosme – C, o, s, m and e – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Mecos.
